I'd go over to Americanmuscle.com They'll have everything and give you ideas to, just by roaming the site. for wheels, stay with american rims, dont get any of hat euro stuff. Ive got some type of billet anthrodite on mine, and it looks good. but really everything is your own preference. exhaust, if you liek noise go for x pipes or h pipes, get rid of your cats, and get the MIL wires. When you go for an inspection just make sure that they are not the type to look under the car. on the computer it will pass though. Also get a shorty antenna. I just ordered mine, but my brother has one on his, it looks a lot better than the long ones. If you like the louvers, look into reat window and side ones (im assuming not convertible) but if it is a convertible, get the styling bar. Grills are another thing to look at, i have only been able to find the billet grill which im ot a huge fan of, so im deciding to make my own.

Body kits? None. This isn't a civic.
Hoods? Keep the stock one. Unless you need clearance for a massive engine, or are reducing the weight with a carbon fiber hood, it's pointless to replace it for looks, especially when most aftermarket hoods are hideous.
Exhaust...Stick with a single exhaust. 2.5" single, headers, high flow Y pipe, will do just fine.
Interior...If you're going to race the car, get a lightweight race seat like a Kirkey, Sparco, Corbeau, etc. If not, leave it as is and just upgrade the stereo as you see fit.
Wheels...17s are a good size.
If you want more power than basic bolt ons, which would get you about 170--180whp, then just sell the car, spend $500 more and get a GT.

Dual exhaust will boost your horse power, 5pt safety harnesses. Look on Summit racing for more ideas. I'd keep the stock rims. After market rims to me just make the car look ugly. I would also add oversized breaks all the way around.

Just be prepared to spend over $6,500 for all the modificataions to your car.

Not the best choice for modifications.

You already wasted money on the cold air intake.

Here is what I would do if I were you if you want something that is actually fast. Sell this Mustang. Add the large amount of money that you would have spent on modifications to this 6 banger Mustang. Use this money to buy a Mustang GT.

You will have a car that will be faster than your 6 banger Mustang could ever hope to be. People just don't modify 6 banger Mustangs. But you will find lots of aftermarket parts for a V8 Mustang GT.

If you want something that is fast, don't screw around with the 6 banger Mustang. Get something that is already fast to begin with, like a Mustang GT
